Minecraft has become one of the most popular games in the world and it comes as no surprise to many. If you haven’t heard of this game, it’s quite possible you actually live under a rock. The game is incredibly popular among kids, especially since it is played on a computer. Kids these days learn how to use computers, tablets and other electronics at a very young age, some as early as two-years-old.
What is Minecraft?
In the event you don’t know what Minecraft is, here’s a short explanation. The game allows players to build just about anything they can imagine using pixelated cubes, almost comparable to Legos, which we all know are incredibly popular with kids of all ages (adults too). The game was launched in 2009 and since then more than 107 million copies have been sold.
Second Most Popular Game
Minecraft is now the second most popular game in the world, according to sales records. The most popular is Tetris. The popular brick-laying game has sold more than 495 million copies since its creation. The third most popular game in the world is Wii Sports with 82 million copies sold.
Why so Popular?
So, why is this game so incredibly popular? One explanation might be that it is so incredibly easy to play. It doesn’t take a lot of practice to become talented at this game. In fact, we said it’s popular among kids, so that right there should tell you that it doesn’t come with an expert level of difficulty. Think about it, it’s like playing with Legos digitally. Everyone loves Legos, even as adults. These types of games/toys bring you back to your childhood and let your imagination run wild.
